A lot of festivals offer fun workshops and programs, but Electric Forest sets itself apart with an incredible program geared specifically towards women. The Her Forest Program is a relatively new initiative Electric Forest launched just last year. The program features a cohesive series of events and options that are meant to build a community among anyone who identifies as women at the festival.
This unique idea is a great way to build a safe community for women at the festival, especially for anyone camping alone or looking to seek a community of women with whom to build their experience. The program even offers special group camping within the GA campgrounds for $40.
The program will host a specially curated event during Weekend 1 and an artist panel for Weekend 2. The theme for the 2017 Her Forest Panel is Allies. The panel will focus on how women can support each other creatively, and nurture each other culturally. The panel will take place during Weekend 2 on Saturday, July 1 from 5-6 PM in the Living Mandala at Reincarnation Village.
Her Forest will be hosting a Women’s Circle each weekend, and a Closing Circle for all genders on the final evening of the Second Weekend. Circles will include informal learning and games, story-sharing, and an invitation to build fresh connections in the Forest community.
The intention is to create a unique, inclusive and powerful experience for participants to connect more deeply with themselves, each other and the meaning of their experience in The Forest. Check out the Her Forest Panel below and find more info on Her Forest here.
